As simple as beautiful? According to Dutch furniture blogger Marrit de Lang, no. Her 1930s home is an eclectic mix of textures, patterns and classic touches. So who better to ask when it comes to mixing and matching rules?
Scroll for his tips.
1. Give me all the velvet!
It’s a comfortable fabric – my Primrose chair is where I curl up and read at night. Combine it with coarser materials like linen for an interesting texture combination.
2. To me, a home is not a home without a warm, welcoming rug.
Choose a pattern if you feel bold, or choose a solid color to complement your existing scheme if you already have a lot going on.
3. Feel free to mix patterns
You will be amazed at how they can work together. Just make sure to stick with a few primary colors for a cohesive overall look. Wall art is a subtle way to do this and also helps you personalize your space.
4. Sofa to refresh?
Invest in a throw like Cassar. It is perfect for relaxing nights and will add an extra dose of texture. Throw pillows are another great accessory option, because the color complements my room and the trim adds another layer of fun.
5. And remember, when mixing and matching materials, don’t limit yourself to upholstery and fabrics.
Light can also get in on the action. Get the Bonney floor lamp – the marble base, brass stand and pleated shade create such a fun accent. Also, a cozy and well-lit room is sure to elevate your evening.
